The Quantum® Tour Edition® PT Baitcast Reel

Recommended Posts

The wife wants to get me something for my birthday next month and I am thinking about telling her I want one of the Quantum® Tour Edition® PT Baitcast reels. Does anyone have one of these? If so, how do you like it? I currently have a KVD Signature Series Baitcaster reel and I have been very happy with it so I figured I would add this. I appreciate any and all comments about this reel.

i have the quantum energy and the new curado e7 and definetly prefer the quantum. If I could get a tour edition I would definetly go for it. The energy is the smoothest reel that I have ever used.

If you like Quantums then go for it. Just make sure you have a nice rod to match with it, it sure is a pretty reel.

I have the Curado E7 & 2009 Quantum Tour Edition, both in left hand.

I gotta tell you that the TE has really impressed me.  The price came down a bit cuz Quantum is coming out w/ there 2010 baitcast reels in 150 size.

Comparing the E7 & the TE, the E7 is a bit wide but low profile.  To me it's a great reel & smooth.  The wider length does bother me a bit it's not all tha comfortable.

The TE isn't as wide in length & much more compact & holds 135 yds or 12 lb line.  That's all the line I need, I don't need 140-150 yds of line on my spool.  I thought the E7 was smooth the TE is really smooth.  I poo-pood the idea of buying an expensive Quantum, I already have the 2009 7.1:1 Catalyst & like it.  Well the TE is alot smoother than the Catalyst, also has a swept carbon handle.  Also the fact that Quantum reels are made in China.  The TE has really impressed me, I didn't think that a reel like that could be better in feel & retrieve than a Shimano or Daiwa...but it's that good.  The drag is awesome, lots of power!  The non handle side has not bothered me as mentioned on Tackletour.  It does not stick out all that much as they say it does.  I am guessing the reviewers for TT, they have small hands.

I really didn't like paying that much more for the TE over the E7 but after a few times using both, the TE has won me over.  Only time will tell whether this reel will hold up.

I have last years Quantum Energy b/c reel & that thing is a pig!  The 2009 Quantum b/c reels are so much better in all around performance.

Thanks for the feedback all, I am thinking that I will pair it up with a Falcon Cara MH 7'0, the rod was recommended to me by Big O.  He also gave me a Big O thumbs up on the reel.

I have the 6.3 and the 7.0 and love them.  I too was hesitant on buying a high dollar Quantum due to all the bad press they had gotten in the past but they have really stepped it up with the '09 line up!  Highly recommend them.  

The one draw back I don't like about the 7.0 is the shallow spool.  I put 15lb big game on it and can cast a spook far enough that I can see the spool at the end of a cast.  I typically like a higher speed reel for bottom baits and could not spool with 20lb and throw a carolina rig with this reel but aside from that it is great.

The 09 Energy's are great but the Tour PT will blow them out of the water.  I have both and they are both excellent but the Tour PT is noticably smoother.
